Michael Maloney and Tanis Lorring won the 5-kilometer ABC Life Choices Celebrate Life! 5K Run and Walk on Saturday in Soldotna.

Maloney finished in 17 minutes, 23 seconds, to defeat runner-up Mekbeb Denbrock by 14 seconds. Lorring took the women’s race at 20:07, with Ahlan Owens nabbing runner-up honors at 23:40.

The boys 5-kilometer run went to Craig Babitt at 23:00, with Westin Werner the runner-up at 23:05. The girls 5-kilometer run went to Raylee Alleman at 26:15, while Valerie McAnelly was next at 26:21.

While the 5K events had 101 participants — and 99 finishers — there were also 226 in the walk, which was nearly 5 kilometers, to swell the total number of participants in the event to 327.

Kris Harris, the administrative director for ABC Life Choices in Kenai, said the event, held the first Saturday in August every year, is one of two major fundraisers for the organization. The other is a pie auction the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.

The run and walk is free, with participants free to give donations. Businesses and others can also sponsor the event, and ABC Life Choices raised $8,600 from those sponsorships.

“We live in a pretty cool community, that’s for sure,” Harris said.

ABC Life Choices provides pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and sexually transmitted infection testing. The organization also offers mentoring classes, in a group setting or one-on-one, that deal with parenting, childbirth, life skills, anger management and financial peace. ABC Life Choices also works with clients coming out of getting sexually trafficked.
